1980 Ode Model 6500 Gold Plated
Three tuning spikes at the 7th, 9th and 10th frets.
Two Keith tuners.
Generally good condition - there's some wear and minor pitting on the gold plating especially on the armrest. Fretwear is minimal.
The wood work shows some brushing wear, but only under direct light.
There's a neck crack from 1993 which was treated by a local luthier. It is difficult to see but it does reduce the asking price by about $500.
My asking price is based upon the current market research of similar/identical ODE banjos which I will share upon request.
Reflected in my asking price is a reduction of $500 based on the presence of the neck crack.
It comes in a hardshell case which has some cosmetic wear, but is structurally sound.
Shipping costs will vary from $100 to $200 (hopefully the lower end).
More detailed photos upon request.
